Wage War Share Music Video For Acoustic Version Of “Never Said Goodbye”

Wage War have premiered a new video for a new acoustic version of “Never Said Goodbye.” This track is from the band’s new acoustic album “The Stripped Sessions,” which will be released on December 2.

The group said the following about the song:

“‘Never Said Goodbye‘ is a song about losing someone you love, without the relief of closure. You’re left wanting another year, another day, one last chance to say the things you wish you had before it’s too late. This was a track originally written on acoustic and was an easy pick for the Stripped record.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve dealt with a lot of loss within our Wage War family and we know many others have felt the same. Grief is one of the hardest emotions to control and understand. We hope this track is a chance to find peace with loss and remember to hold those closest to you… closer.”

Cody Quistad also added the following about the album, which serves as “a time capsule of [the band’s] years so far”:

“We obviously love to get rowdy and play super-energetic hard music, but just as important to me— and I think to people in general — is having that outlet to listen to something that’s a different speed. And how cool is it if a listener has songs they love in the high-energy realm, but it’s the same band, and those songs now offer a different take?

It’s been a hard couple years for everybody. There are songs on this record that I think and hope will be helpful to people who might be going through a rough time. It sounds weird, but I listen to my own music, and this record certainly helped me. It just feels like super special and plus I can finally play our music for my grandparents!”

Unleash The Archers Share “Acoustipex” Playthrough Video

Unleash The Archers have shared a playthrough video for an acoustic version of their song “Apex.” The updated take on the song, which is called “Acoustipex,” will serve as the title track of a new two-song EP that will be included with the fifth anniversary deluxe edition of their 2017 album “Apex.” That effort will be released on November 18.

Singer Brittney Slayes commented:

“We are so excited to share ‘Acoustipex’ with you all; it’s a moody acoustic take on the title track from Apex and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it! It’s got a bit of a country vibe, but we added some symphonic elements as well to stay true to the synth theme of the record.

The music video was a challenge because we all live in different cities now, but we had a great time coming up with a concept we think you might appreciate. For those of you that have seen our acoustic version of ‘Apex’ on YouTube from CTV, you will understand where our inspiration came from lol 😉 Make sure to get your pre-orders for the EP in now before they’re all gone, and let us know what you think!”

Thrice Release Acoustic Version Of “Summer Set Fire To The Rain”

Thrice have released an acoustic version of their song “Summer Set Fire To The Rain.“ The original version of that track appears on the band’s latest album “Horizons/East.” Vocalist/guitarist Dustin Kensrue commented:

“We usually write songs built up from instrumental parts, so it’s always fun to strip them down and find the bones of the song hidden beneath.”

Papa Roach Share Music Video For Acoustic Version Of “No Apologies”

Papa Roach have shared an official video for an acoustic version of their song “No Apologies.“ The band said the following about that:

“We visited the University of California, Davis campus to rehearse with the UC Davis Marching Band and while we were there found some acoustic guitars and shot this video. This is the acoustic version of ‘No Apologies‘ which appears on the album ‘Ego Trip‘.”

Wage War Share Music Video For Stripped Version Of “Godspeed”

Wage War have shared a new video for a stripped version of their song “Godspeed.” This rendition of the track will appear on the band’s upcoming acoustic release “The Stripped Sessions.” The group commented:

“‘Godspeed’ was one of our favorite songs off of ‘Manic.’ As soon as we finished in the studio, we knew it need the ‘Stripped’ treatment. We always try to give each song its own unique style. Growing up in the South, the song naturally adopted a country flare. We hope everyone enjoys the first acoustic breakdown — that we know of.”
